Resumo

BOUCHET, Françoise et al. Toxocara canis (Werner, 1782) eggs in the Pleistocene site of Menez-Dregan, France (300,000-500,000 years before present). Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2003, vol.98, suppl.1, pp.137-139. ISSN 1678-8060.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02762003000900020.

On the archaeological site of Menez-Dregan in Brittany, France, dated 300,000-500,000 years-old, paleoparasitological analysis of cave deposits led to the detection of well-preserved helminth eggs, which morphology and morphometry pointed to the diagnosis of Toxocara canis eggs, a parasite of carnivore mammals. Paleolithic remains suggested a parasitism of the hyena Crocuta spelaea or other canids that inhabited the region.

Palavras-chave : paleoparasitology; ancient parasitism; parasite fossil record; Toxocara canis; paleofauna.
